Sparkle Every Day

Hello crafters!  I was having a play with our new Pearl Opal Polishes and came up with this card!  I started by covering a piece of card with Red Pearl, Green Pearl and Blue Pearl Opal Polishes.  I swiped the different colours across the card until I filled it and set it aside to dry well.   They look different depending on what colour card you apply them to as well.   Next I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to cut out the centre section and I added mounting foam to it to raise it.  I glued the outer frame to another piece of card as a backing and added the raised centre section to the middle.  I cut the Sparkle Every Day All in One out of both Antique Gold and Black card and used the black as an offset shadow behind it and glued both of them to the centre of the card.  I made an assortment of flowers using the Magnolia Corner's extra flowers and cut them out of some extra of the Opal polish card.  I added gold accents using the larger die from the Magnolia Corner set and arranged all the flowers and leaves in opposite corners.  The card was completed with white, gold and black mats and layers  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Another week another beautiful start with this gorgeous inspiration. These all in one dies look amazing especially with such a subtle background. I've seen so many stunning pictures of cards made with these dies, they are certainly more of a gift and keepsake to give to someone special or close to your heart. Had a bit of a rushed typo yesterday lol it was market Sunday and I'm always stressed and worried so I hope you had a lovely day and more of the same today xxx

Hi Sue - love the pastel background with the opal polishes. I was lucky enough to win this die on your last launch and I made a card for my granddaughter's 19th birthday yesterday! She loved it. Thank you once again for the die and all the continued inspiration. Sending best wishes

Hi Sue. Love this card. It looks so classy. The opal polishes that you have chosen work so well with the antique gold card. Love that die too, it really does take centre stage on the card.
